  • Saint Nicholas church

On the left bank of the Mtkvari River on K.Khetagurovi Street St. Nicholas Church is located. At first St. cross appearing church was built on this very place in 1815, which in 1857-1859 was restored by the archpriest Ioane Imnaidze and he built a burial vault- gate in the west, a little later in 1861-1863 the dome was built on the church by the archpriest Petre Imnaidze (Ioane’s son), the dome is supported by apses and by the protruding of the wall, in this period the western gate was altered as an arm of the church and it opens towards the under dome space with a wide arch. In 1900-1902 next to it was built a bigger ware-house. The entrances of the church are on three sides: in western and the northern arms facing each other, and in the center of the western arm.

The facades of the long arms of the church are identical: narrow, on the top of the arch type wooden door, a little bit beyond, and the window under the pediment is located between the windows. All the windows are surrounded with frames having the complicated profile relief. In the corners of the pediment and in the edge corners of it the crosses are made by the deepening of the brick layer. In the corners of the church arms, the narrow helmet type niches are located.

On the top of the western door the elements of classicism are observed: the arches supported by the small columns of the Dorian order, that on their side support the cross that is located on the step and is inscribed in the rhomb type halo.

The most remarkable is the eastern façade; the altar is lighted with the flat, arch type window that is placed in the double frame. On its both sides the image of crosses that are placed on the steps are placed. On the top of the window the medal, made of brick, is depicted. The composition is completed with the equal armed crosses, placed under the pediment. The Dorian pilasters are given.

The narrow windows of the dome are surrounded with arches in which the brick ornaments are inscribed. The constant belt of the ornaments is given under the profiled cornice.

The mureal paintings by G. Zaziashvili (1900) still can be seen in the interior.
